Fairhaven Town Counsel
The Fairhaven Board of Selectmen voted Monday night to keep Thomas Crotty as Town Counsel. According to published reports, the vote to keep Crotty followed a three-month-long review of town attorney services that included 19 firms applying for the position and culminated last month with Selectmen interviewing Crotty, Kopelman and Paige, and Joseph Michaud and associates. Kopelman and Paige was the first choice of Selectman Bob Espindola but was the second choice for Board Chairman Charlie Murphy and Member Geoffrey Haworth. Both opted to stick with Crotty because of his 30 years of experience in Fairhaven.
